Fox News is reporting that Sen. Claire McCaskill’s husband, Joseph Shepard, was accused of domestic violence by his ex-wife:
FOX NEWS: "Sen. Claire McCaskill’s husband was accused of domestic violence by his ex-wife, and his company once victim-blamed a woman who sued for sexual misconduct… a startling backdrop to the senator's message regarding sexual harassment." #MOSEN https://t.co/GHCDTy9TVC

And it gets worse. According to the report, Shepard verbally abused her, punched her in the chest and … wait for it … peed on her:
A lot in this new Fox News piece on abuse claims against McCaskill's husband, including: a) he punched ex-wife in her sore "cancer breasts" b) urinated on her c) threatened that she'd be left with nothing, end up in low income housing.

From Fox News:
The protection order she filed against Shepard also recalled other previous incidents of alleged abuse.
“I am afraid of respondent and there is an immediate and present danger of abuse or stalking of me,” she claimed in the report. “He has tripped me, hit me before (police were called by my daughter), punched my cancer breast, peed on me, pushed me down and slapped me.”
“He now threatens that everything I have is his and I will end up in his low income housing and he wants to take my things,” she added.
And this should be game over for Sen. McCaskill:
